Cattori, V; Eckhardt, U; Hagenbuch, B (1999). Molecular cloning and functional characterization of two alternatively spliced Ntcp isoforms from mouse liver1. Biochimica et Biophysica Acta, 1445(1):154-159.

Full text not available from this repository.


To isolate the murine Na+/taurocholate cotransporting polypeptide (Ntcp), we screened a mouse liver cDNA library and identified Ntcp1, encoding a 362 amino acid protein and Ntcp2, encoding a 317 amino acid protein which had a shorter C-terminal end. Both isoforms mediated saturable Na+-dependent transport of taurocholate when expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes. Analysis of the gene revealed that Ntcp2 is produced by alternative splicing where the last intron is retained.
